president bush, was done some findings for our country. in hindsight, i think the iraq war was a mistake. there were no weapons of mass destruction in iraq, we spent an enormous effort, young men and women gave their lives for that effort. it cost us over $1 trillion. it really harmed our credibility, the basic credibility of our country, not just in the middle east, but other parts of the world trade with the benefit of hindsight, if we could go back to 2003, i would not recommend we invade iraq. in that sense, it was a war of choice, not a war of necessity. i think the decision by president bush to go into afghanistan in october 2001, a couple of weeks after 9/11, and that was a war of necessity. we had to go after osama bin laden. host: democrats' line. good morning, samuel. caller: good morning.
